BP Oman awarded $730m two long-term drilling contracts to KCA Deutag and Abraj Energy Service for the Khazzan project in Block 61.
Scope  The Khazzan/Makarem gas fields, covers an area of some 2,800 square kilometers in central Oman, tight natural gas fields have originally discovered in 1993 but have remained undeveloped due to the complexity of their 'tight gas' reservoirs.

The two fields could potentially yield reserves of 100-120 trillion cu.ft of gas from previous estimation of 30-40 trillion cu.ft of gas. All wells will be connected to the nearby Saih Rawl gas plant. The two fields contain a mix of sour and sweet gas in four tight reservoirs: Barik, Miqrat, Amri and Buah.

The project work includes drilling of 9 wells to depths of 4,650 metres, construction of a central processing facility and installation of pipelines for the supply of feed gas.

According to the gas processing agreexment, BP has launched an Extended Well Test (EWT) scheme that will allow for appraisal gas from the four wells to be fed to the government owned gas processing plant at Saih Rawl, which will then feed the gas into the Omani gas network for domestic consumption.
